June 2011 - The labs of Drs. Ben Philpot and Mark Zylka have collaborated on the paper “Angelman syndrome: insights into genomic imprinting and neurodevelopmental phenotypes,” which was selected as the cover article for the June 2011 issue of Trends in Neurosciences. The article presents their recent findings on the expression and function of the UBE3A gene as it relates to Angelman syndrome. First author Angela Mabb is a postdoctoral fellow working in both the Philpot and Zylka labs, and co-authors include Philpot lab postdoc Matthew Judson.
Angela earned her PhD in Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2007. She then accepted a postdoctoral position in the lab of Mike Ehlers at Duke University until joining our department earlier this year.
